SURFACE TRANSPORT NOISE - THE TOTAL SYSTEM

The author proposes that in discussing transportation noise one should view the matter as a circular process containing the following aspects: transportation planning; population and land use planning; receiver; path; and source. The main points which come out of looking at noise in this manner are as follows: (1) the acoustician must not work in a vacuum, he has to integrate his ideas with those of the planners; (2) it is important to consider what population or what subgroup of the population we are dealing with and the extent to which they are able to get out of the way of noise; and (3) the overall transportation policy will perhape have the major effect in terms of reducing noise ennoyance, thus those concerned with noise must take part in the development of such policies.
